About Different Portugal
Different Portugal is an Animation Tourism Company that organises sightseeing private tours in Portugal, including day tours, multiday tours and wine & food tours. Isn't it amazing when we visit places where friends live and they show us around all the sites only locals know? The greatest memories we take back home are of moments lived in the authentic country, not only in the touristic sites. That is the story behind Different Portugal. We want to share real places and experiences in Portugal in a unique, warm, friendly way. At Different Portugal we provide both regular private tours and tailor-made private tours in Portugal allowing you to know the real Portugal in a customised and memorable way. Our private tours include historical places throughout the country, from Sintra, Cascais and Lisbon to Porto, Guimaraes, Coimbra. We also organise private tours in Alentejo and Algarve regions showing you the best of our country in each place. The extensive knowledge of our local guides will also take you to several off the beaten path places in Portugal. Our knowledge of the country is much wider as our local guides are foodies and wine lovers. We organise a wide range of wine and gastronomical private tours, from half-day tours to multiday tours. The extensive knowledge of the country, love for gastronomy and wine of Different Portugal’s owner, Filipe, also a local guide, allow us to develop charming, tailor-made and creative tours, where all details are important. Different Portugal started its business in 2011 and has received the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence since 2012. Choose one of our day tours, multiday tours or wine & food tours and let us be your Portuguese pal! Come with us and discover a Different Portugal!!

I booked a trip and was very excited to use Filippe! He had planned a great tour and was incredibly accommodating. Unfortunately, with COVID-19, we are not able to travel abroad and don't know when we will be able to be. Filippe was helpful and refunded us right away!! We cannot wait to use him for our next trip.

Our wonderful knowledgeable guide, Manny, picked us up at our ship and created a great day of sightseeing. Pena Palace in Sintra was definitely the highlight. Manny knew the perfect spots to take photos of us just like a professional photographer. We loved looking out to sea from the most western point of Europe. Cascais was a unexpected delightful stop. Lunch at a tiny family run restaurant was delicious. Manny was one of the very best guides we have ever had! We had a terrific day!

Just returned from an 11 day trip to Portugal. We hired Manny with Different Portugal for a day trip to Sintra and Cascais. Manny picked us up at our hotel promptly and we were the first in line at the Pena Palace and avoided the long lines. He is very knowledgeable about the history and knew every spot to take the best photos of the views. We then went to the quaint town of Sintra and enjoyed pastries specifically from Sintra and they were delicious. Manny gave us a private wine tasting in one of the shops. Manny knows everyone and everyone loves him!! We had an amazing lunch on the way to Cascais at a local restaurant (seafood stew, squid that was incredible, homemade almond tart and a delicious bottle of wine). Cascais was beautiful and took amazing cliff photos of the water and then we walked around the beach town. I would highly recommend this tour with Manny!!

My wife and I had an absolutely wonderful day touring Sintra and Cascais with Manny. He picked us up at the hotel at 8:30 am and drove us to Sintra. His deep knowledge of Portuguese history provided an excellent backdrop during the ride to Sintra and the Pena Palace. We were one of the first to arrive at the palace. This allowed us to go through the rooms and take pictures before the large tours arrived. We then visited the town of Sintra and sampled some excellent pastries. He also took us to a small shop for Port wine and jam tastings. It was so much fun as he imparted his knowledge about wines and jams and how they are made. He continued to take photos of us in terrific spots which highlighted the surroundings. We drove to Cabo Da Roca which is the westernmost location in Europe. It was one of the most beautiful sights we have seen in our travels. The combination of land and sea was breathtaking. We then had a delicious lunch. After lunch he drove us to Cascais and we walked around town by the beach. Throughout the tour Manny continued to discuss not only Portugal but the many other locations around the world he has traveled. He provided excellent recommendations for future places to visit. Manny dropped us off at the hotel around 6 pm. Overall, it was an informative tour and a day we will remember for a long long time. If you are interested in history and want to spend a fun day touring a beautiful part of Portugal, then Manny is your man.
